Conducting weird scientific experiments, crazed Dr. James Brewster (Bela Lugosi), aided by his colleague Dr. Randall (Henry Hall), has managed to transform himself into a hairy, stooped-over ape-man. Desperately seeking a cure, Brewster believes only an injection of recently-drawn human spinal fluid will prove effective. With Randall refusing to help him, it falls to Brewster and his captive gorilla to find appropriate donors

Wallace Ford and Lugosi
Together again after "The Mysterious Mr Wong". Ford reprises his wise cracking reporter character looking more beefy and less energetic trading barbs with the usual dame interest. Lugosi is Lugosi and devolves nicely ala lost souls. Some cool WW2 references if you like that sort of thing.

Hurray For The Ape Man
They simply do not get any better than this . To bad there are only 6 choices this is a 7 for sure.

How can you consider it a comedy? I'd rather watch this, The Giant Leeches, The Giant Gila Monster or any b-horror/scifi movie from those days than I would from the craphole stuff they put out today! FIVE STARS BABY!

Sci-Fi? Horror? No! It is a comedy, sometimes intended to be, sometimes unintentionally, but it works. I liked it.

I've seen worse Lugosi flicks. Scared to Death comes to mind. This was fun to riff while watching, since there're plenty of scenes needing ridicule and not an excess of dialog. The story follows the standard mad scientist as victim of his own work desperately seeking relief, i.e., Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, etc.
